Tummy Time

Caleb HATES tummy time. The doctor says it is very important and so does the pamphlet that he gave us.

It says...
In the first months of life, babies learn about movement of their body and develop the physical skills required for rolling over, sitting and crawling. They learn to respond and adapt to challenges. For this reason, a baby needs the opportunity to play on its tummy…blah blah blah...

This is the progression of tummy time for Caleb.

1. "Wait...what is I on my tummy?"
2. "Hold on a minute...they wouldn't do that to me...they know I hate this!"
3. "They did put me on my tummy. I'll show them!"
4. "HA HA HA...Whose the boss now!? I bet you won't put me on my tummy again."

Preston hated tummy time, too. I think he could only stand it for like literally a couple of mins. Now he likes it as he's learning to crawl...ahh!

Our Caleb wanted to be on his tummy all the time. He wouldn't sleep any other way. I know they say not to do that, but he had a strong neck and good head control so we let him be on his tummy.
